Stayed 2 nights in June 2018

It's a very neat and clean place. The staff is also very helpful, location is everything.”

The single rooms also need to have a full length mirror in them and the hotel needs to do something about the wet floors when it rains, I understand it's under construction but the wet floors could cause serious injury. Plus an extra blanket wouldn't hurt considering the fact that winter is very cold in Cape town plus a remote for the TV and cutlery was forgotten in my room. This is just a reminder I reckon they were in the rush to get the room ready I wasn't really bothered but some travellers might be.

Had a lovely stay ”

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel it was really a good experience just had an issue with two staff members who work at the reception one is a dark guy who I think works during the day he gave me an uncleaned room he never checked with the housekeeping if the room was done yet but luckily I met Sam the manager he sorted things out in no time with the help of the head of housekeeping they both quickly got me clean and tidy room the other guy works at night I think he’s name is Nick he’s not people friendly I mean in an industry of people you gotta make sure the guest is fine from when you greet each other, overall everyone was so friendly and helpful from housekeeping to management everyone except the two I’m happy and I’ll come back again very soon

A bit disappointed”

I was told that I need to book a double for inconvenience and my room will be upgraded when I get to the hotel.... this did not happen. the reason for this was because there was an issue with the website, so the room I wanted was not available when the site was back up. The television in the room was not working, there was only one SABC channel available an was display was snowy. No wifi as advertised. There was little to nothing in the shower gel bottle. Other than that it was okay.

Thanks for your review and for staying with us. We are a 'capsule' hotel and our unique selling point is having the ability to offer small rooms for small prices with all of the amenities or a larger hotel room. Our rooms are perfect for a traveller who is out during the day and needs a comfy room to rest their heads at night.
